Great food, friendly servers. You must eat at Fox's if you go to York. The view is worth the visit, but the food makes it even better.

Fantastic food and spectacular views of the Atlantic coast and Nubble Light. Prices are a little high, but it's to be expected for the location and fare offered. Best lobster bisque I have found.

We visited Fox's mid October. It was on our bucket list to have seafood on the coast of Maine while looking at the ocean. This place gave us that, and so much more. The large windows in the place overlook the ocean and beautiful rocky coast. If you are there early you can get a seat that overlooks the ocean... More

The meal was overpriced, drinks were weak, portions were not reflective of the inflated prices, the waiter served other tables bread and butter, but not ours. And the waiter's healing nose ring with redness and discharge was pretty disgusting. We are generous tippers and we did so, but really....against our better judgement.

We visited Fox's twice during our Fall stay! Our waitress both times was Marie and she was great ! We really like the location, food and the people that work here. I had the lobster both times. Boiled and lazymans. SO good! My Mom had the generous lobster salad both visits. The brothers mixed it up with scallops and clams.... More

Great little spot with walk up window and patio over looking on of the most beautiful lighthouses in the country. Lobster was great and the prices were a little better than we had seen previously. Lobster, lighthouse,sunshine and an Atlantic sea breeze- oh and dont forget about the ice cream!!!!
